VW Factory Museum

The VW factory museum is NOT located on the factory grounds. It is within walking distance, though and is located at:
  AutoMuseum Wolfsburg
  Dieselstrasse 35
  3180 Wolfsburg 1
  Tel. 053 61/5 20 71

Find the main street in front of the train station and walk along it away from the factory. A few blocks past the overpass is the museum.

Entry into the museum is DM 3.00 (currently about $0.70/DM). There is a small gift shop with a slightly larger and slightly more expensive collection that the factory shop. Credit cards are not accepted. Hours are from 10:00 to 17:00 daily, although it is closed from 24Dec to 1Jan.

Inside the museum are a 1934 Bug prototype, a 1936 Bug, the 1,000,000th Wolfsburg Bug, the 20,000,000th Wolfsburg Bug, the last Wolfsburg Bug, some bugs from Ireland, South Africa, and Mexico, Herbie the Love Bug, a Schwimmwagen, a few Type IIs, a gorgeous type 34 (type 3 Karmann Ghia), some nice type 3 prototypes, and much more. Some of my favorites can be seen below. Click on each picture for a bigger image.
